Fertility Awareness Method + Wink

Fertility Awareness Method + Wink

I am an advocate for curiosity and getting to know yourself extensibly as opposed to just adapting the habits that you see others doing that work for them. By knowing yourself more, if an issue presents itself, you’re able to be an active participant in your patient care, guiding your practitioner based on your unique symptoms, rather than having the practitioner project the average woman’s symptoms onto you. And this is what the fertility awareness method is. To quote

Travel Tips

Traveling used to be a huge source of anxiety for me, constantly wondering if I’d be able to maintain my usual routine and lifestyle. This happened after I studied abroad for a year in college and tossed on around 15 pounds from the ocnstant amount of traveling (read: eating) I was doing. After that, I became really restrictive in that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the travel itself, as I was so concerned about keeping up with my

NEW YORK CITY

Recently traveled to NYC for my Wellness Meet up and loved my airbnb so much that I figured I’d make a little travel guide for the city. Unfortunately only had a few days there, so the eating list is much shorter than it should be. In fact, I’m a little disappointed in it. Which only means I have to be back soon.

Hangovers

Now that I’m a ripe 25 (read: 84), not only can I officially not hang, but I definitely can’t hang(over). To put simply: I just don’t have the time to be bed bound for the entirety of the day, wallowing at the sorry state of my head, stomach, and soul. But drinking is a pretty regular part of my social life, and I love going out to dinner and nice drinks with friends. I guess it’s rare for those in the health and wellness space

FEMpowerment Fridays episode 5 + interview with Jessica Murnane + Endometriosis Tips

This week, I was so incredibly fortunate to interview Jessica Murnane, from One Part Plant. She is a cookbook author, endometriosis warrior, podcast extraordinaire, and is certified in plant based nutrition. She not only manages, but thrives with endometriosis, and even offered advice to Lena Dunham, who was also diagnosed with endo. Needless to say, I am incredibly excited to be able to host her on my blog this week. Talk about one inspiring female. Read on for the

Podcasts

I love to walk around the city and instead of using a pedometer to track my steps, I like to think of my podcast listening as a PODometer (eye roll). The ever growing list is below, included with basic descriptions. If you have any you’re loving lately, please leave suggestions in the comments below!! Plus, in my workout bag: Cocokind organic rosewater toner (I use this and pair it with a moisturizer instead of washing my face after a

Go Harvey – Online Integrative Health Service

This post is not only about my experience working with Harvey (www.goharvey.com), an online integrative and functional medicine service, but about telling my own health story. You’ll find that when working with an integrative or functional medicine doctor, the symptoms that you’re experiencing have to be taken into account with your overall health, to see the holistic, bigger picture. Only then do all of these things only start to make sense. These doctors are detectives and heroes; they

Helping to Heal Concussions / TBIs Naturally

When a TBI or any brain injury occurs, the body loses and has lessened capacity at operating at best capacity. A concussive injury leads to “inflammation, cellular damage, apoptosis, membrane disruption, axonal damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, hyper or hypo metabolism and increased susceptibility to repeat injury ( 1 ). To date, there is no effective treatment for a concussion. Concussion management thus far has focused on prevention (e.g., helmets, rule changes) and the philosophy of “rest, rest, rest” allowing
